used to be the law until 2004. the restriction on the sale of magazines that hold more than ten bullets at a time. that bill will now go to the full senate. and so far, no republicans have said they will support it. in debating it today, though, something kind of amazing happened in the senate and we have the tape of it. i want to show you the tape and what's going to happen here at the beginning is that you will see the republican senator from texas ted cruz, freshman senator giving a little lecture about what he thinks is important in this discussion. this lecture specifically to senator dianne feinstein, but bear with me. sit through the lecture for a second because what you're watching for here, what you want to see is the reaction to the lecture. watch. >> if i might pose a question to the senior senator from california. it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. the term the right of the peopl

this murder. law enforcement said they're not jumping to conclusions whether his job or his job as second in command of state prisons in missouri before he came to colorado, whether any of those job titles had anything to do with his murder last night. they said they're keeping an open mind as to the possibility that what he does for a living had nothing to do with why he was killed. but in response to the killing, at what is already a heightened time of political tension in the state, colorado officials have responded by increasing security for other top government officials in the state. they have also increased security at the governor's mansion. this is happening in colorado at an already heightened time. the colorado legislature has been debating and passing gun reform legislation and that debate has been unusually contentious. they have pledged on the floor of the senate that they will disobey them. they will disobey the state's new laws. democratic lawmakers have received threats for their support of gun reform. criminal charges have been brought against people for making de

. >> what do you want to do? >> you know, my dream was probably always to go to law school. that would be a dream. but i just take it as it comes. see how it goes. >> do you have any regrets. do you worry about the future? >> no. once i made the decision and you know, i feel good about it and feel good about the way it turned out, so no, i don't have any regrets. it turned out exactly the way i would have hoped it would. i will move forward and play it by ear and take it as it comes. >> again, to reiterate, why did you do this? why? why would you put yourself out there like this? >> you know, like the people need to hear what someone really believes. they needed to hear what he really thinks. he was just saying the absolute opposite in public. and i just felt like that, you know, just watch him on tv and that just wasn't what he was saying in public. so it just -- everybody needed to hear that. >> so you knew you had a unique seat in history as to what had been said. >> yeah, i thought it could be a game-changer. i thought maybe he would leave the campaign at that point. >> okay, scott

challenging the government's authority to make this kind of demand was against the law. today the clinton appointed judge in the case ruled the national security letters violate the right to free speech. she banned them outright. second case comes from a three-judge panel in the circuit of the district of columbia, second only to the united states supreme court in national influence. in that one the panel of two clinton appointees and one bush appointee ruled unanimously the cia cannot keep the drone worker program so completely secret that a lawsuit asking for more information about it is dismissed out of hand. they said the cia must give the court at least a description of the records it keeps on drone strikes. while we are not likely to see the records now posted on white house.gov there are new limits on white house privilege and that's extremely big news. joining us is deputy legal director of the american civil liberties union jameel jafer. he argued the case in front of the federal appeals court. jameel, good to have you here tonight. >> thank you. good to be here. >> walk me throu

. whatever you think of the planned parenthood legislation, it has to be said that this turns into law and not just politics. in the states where republicans are in power, they are doing stuff right now that they have never done before. as long as abortion has been legal in this country and constitutionally protected for the past 40 years. they have never been more radical than they are right now. we have reported before on this show about the radical turn taken in arkansas's legislature where lawmakers just passed an ban that was vetoed, that it was unconstitutional. but the arkansas legislature overrode the veto because they do not care that her definitely going to get sued over it, and that they will lose that lawsuit and they will waste a bunch of money in the process. much as they would like to, republicans cannot just ban abortion, thanks to row versus wade. arkansas does not stand alone because now republicans in north dakota have passed an even more extreme and obviously unconstitutional ban on abortion. theirs doesn't start at 12 weeks. theirs starts at 6 weeks, which is befor

movements, they often leap ahead of the law. and we're seeing that right now with this is an example. the fact this can happen in winston salem, again, it's the fifth largest city here in north carolina. you know, this is really unprecedented and you know, among methodist churches, you have some others in places like austin and chicago and of course, california, that that have enacted similar moves like this, but not in the deep south. not in north carolina. this is really important what's happening here. >> give me a brief answer. do you think we'll see marriage equality in your lifetime? >> in north carolina? well, you know, i write about manners, so not a great thing to ask someone their edge, but i'm hopeful that it's coming. >> all right. thank you so very much. >> thank you, michael. >> that's the ed show. the rachel maddow show starts now. >>> thanks to you at home for joining us. the great state of florida does not right now have a lieutenant governor. they have a governor, of course. you know, old rick scott. there is a job in florida called lieutenant governor, but

law. the administration said sure, as long as the changes you want to make don't weaken the rules on welfare and work. it was republican governors asking, republican governors and democratic governors and the obama administration says yes, provided we protect the welfare and work requirements. republicans decided to lie about it and say the president and the administration did exactly the opposite of what they actually did. he took the work requirements out of welfare. he just wants a free ride for everybody. he's buying votes with the free welfare, obama money. it's not true at all. it was the opposite of what the administration had done. the republicans thought they had something. mitt romney made a campaign ad out of it. a few days before the election, romney made another campaign ad out of the same untrue thing. it was a lie. it was debunked. it was one of the brighter, more obvious campaigns of a campaign filled with lies. it was the lie you only try in the hottest heat of an election year when you are desperate because nothing else is working. now, bizarrely, in cold, cold marc

assassination. in the aftermath, there was a great imptous to reform the lawes. gallup showed that more than 80% of the country wanted congress to enact the strictest restrictions possible. they believe not able to get anything through congress. bought legally by his assassin that would not have been legal to buy. that apparently was not enough. it was not until the president's brother was also assassinated and martin luther king jr. was assassinated in 1968 than did got done at the federal level and even then, it was just barely. lbj announced bitterly he did finally get through. >> guns are to be kept out of the the hands of the criminal. and out of the hands of the insane and out of the hands of the irresponsible, then we just must have licensing. if the criminal with a gun is to be tracked down quickly, then we must have registration in this country. the voices that block these safeguards were not the voices of an aroused nation. they were the voices of a powerful lobby, a gun lobby. that has prevailed for the moment. in an election year. we have been through a great deal of ai
